Who's that? Gwyneth Paltrow was freaked out when an eagle-eyed TV watcher grabbed an image of her mom, Blythe Danner looking just like her, from an old Columbo episode.

Sharing his finding via Instagram, doncohb tagged Paltrow in the picture, and the similarity between the mother-daughter duo was so surprising, it blew the Oscar-winning actress's mind too!

"#repost Okay. This is weird. #isthatmeormymom," the mom-of-two captioned the screen grab as she reposted it to her Instagram feed. The amazing snap shows Danner, 72, as a young actress, looking the spitting image of her 42-year-old daughter, despite the fact she's got messy hair, and is wearing a pair of retro shades.

Paltrow and Danner are not the first famous look-alike mother-daughter duo to feature on Instagram this week. On Tuesday, May 26, Rumer Willis shared a photo of herself and her famous mom Demi Moore looking completely identical in a matching outfit and glasses.
